Early yearsEdit

Born in Palo, Tucumán Province, Serrizuela started his career with Los Andes in the Argentine 2nd division in 1980. He played for the club until his transfer to Rosario Central in 1985, he then had a spell with Club Atlético Lanús in 1986.


Serrizuela joined Racing de Córdoba of the Primera División Argentina in 1986 and played for the club until he joined River Plate in 1988. He was part of the River squad that won the 1989-1990 championship, and on the back of this success he was selected to play for the Argentina national football team in the 1990 World Cup. Afterwards he moved to Mexico to play for Cruz Azul and Veracruz.

In 1992, Serrizuela returned to Argentina where he played one season for Club Atlético Huracán before joining Club Atlético Independiente where he was part of the squad that won the Clausura 1994 championship. In 1996, he joined Independiente's hated local rivals Racing Club de Avellaneda.

Later yearsEdit

In 1997, Serrizuela dropped down a division to play for Talleres de Córdoba. He helped them to win the 1997–98 Primera B Nacional title and promotion to the Primera before returning to his boyhood club Los Andes where he played until his retirement in 2000.
